take tray -- petraeus betray us. bill clinton has healed himself. and now politics mired in scandal. it's not just the family hurt but the rest of us. live longer, work longer. some propose to avoid the fiscal cliff would raise the age for social security and/or medicare and may work for some but how about the men and women whose backs, legs and heart can't wait two more years to retire? you want a 70-year-old flying the airplane? hi, i'm chris matthews. welcome to the show. with us today access tv dan rather, the bbc katty kay, "the new york times" jodi kantor and abc's sam donaldson. first up the petraeus story and it has us disturbed. washington is just as dumbfounded, torn between wonder at the dysfunction of our national security leaders and of course reluctant curiosity. dan, why does this same thing keep happening? it just happens, these powerful men, even as disciplined as petraeus. you know petraeus. >> i do know him and like him and think he's been a great patriot and public servant. but in answer to your question, i simply don't know. what we do know is it occurs, has occurre
hart and bill clinton. do we say well, if they do that, we have to dispense with them. they can't be in the public eye. chris: you be the judge. you're the president of the united states for 10 minutes and i bring to you the petraeus case. it hasn't gotten out yet but will get out and you know it will because there are people out there, an f.b.i. agent, c.i.a. agent and they can drop anything anywhere. will you keep him on? >> he's the c.i.a. director and blackmail and all the possibilities are there. could they blackmail bill clinton? chris: put out the word he had an affair but i'm keeping him. >> everybody makes their own judgment as to whether this is more important than that. chris: right. >> if you're asking me about the people i named in history, i think what they did for the country was more important than the other but you can disagree. chris: but were all kept secret at the time. >> except for bill clinton. in retrospect he say he was a good president and mr. was peace and prosperity under bill clinton. petraeus had to go for the reasons jodi pointed out. you're the he
really is just a regular guy and that he's a bill clinton. and he's not a bill clinton. he's not a bill clinton. is a long way from a bill clinton. so i think america is also a very divided place. i also tend to spend a lot of time in red states because they tend to be my favorite places to be. but i know that there are stronghold, particularly in major cities and places like that were president obama has an enormous amount of support. so i think that i'd like to be able to say that we can notch that down in the grand era that came on the back of a tumultuous time where america was in turmoil, where people were looking for someone that represented hope, and to his abilities and through his message he was able to sell themselves as something that he clearly was not. that's the best i can offer you, i'm sorry. [applause] >> i have one question from someone who didn't want to ask. then will make it through, i wanted to remind everyone that books are for sale over here that he has written because we're going to have to wind this up. and i forgot to announce that this is c-span2, book -- is
want growth. >> and we had no better growth than under bill clinton and that's what we're going back to. that works. >> that was a totally different economy. and the growth. >> how so? >> completely different. we wouldn't go into bill clinton's term of office with a trillion dollars a year worth of deficits. we didn't go into bill clinton's first term of office with government taking 24% gdp, we didn't do that. >> wait, wait we-- we inherited. stuart: i don't want to rewrite economic history i'm not going to let do you that. we took off-- america took off after newt gingrich and the republicans took control of congress in 1994, when the people, the economy could be assured that it would not be rash and outrageous spending. he stopped that and that's when the economy took off. and that's, by the way, that is when bill clinton actually lowered the rate on capital gains taxes. >> and raised taxes for-- on other income earners, so, here is what history will tell us, that it takes a democrat to clean up after a president named burn. we saw that with clinton after bush 41 we're going to see t
madison, andrew jackson, theodore roosevelt, dwight eisenhower, rall reagan and bill clinton. lincoln has a special case in the successful second term. it's interesting to note that only the president had a more successful second term than the first or james madison and andrew jackson. the following is an accounting of the president elected to the second term and the reason for those are the trouble second term. member for field because of the war that seemed on winnable or for lack of preparedness. jefferson, truman, johnson and bush were the four. also failed because of economic crisis or the failure to act to detour such a crisis and these were jefferson, cleveland, coolidge, franklin roosevelt with a 37 downturn and george bush to eight failed due to their inability to leave with jefferson, wilson, truman, johnson, nixon and bush. they failed to to franklin roosevelt and richard nixon. four of them did not effectively communicate this agenda or initiative were jefferson, monroe, grant and cleveland. obviously the dominant source of failure for the second term prudent has been their in
of the republicans now. you were talking about bill clinton. >> democrats have now won the popular vote in five of six elections just as republicans did in five of six from 'ski6 - to-'88. they began a process of introspection and reflection and change that ultimately produced bill clinton and the new democratic movement and a victory four years later. they acknowledged they weren't speaking to as many people on the other side. if this coalition was a muyoert this year with all of the headwinds, it's a majority. and romney's response to say this coalition is being bribed, that's not ways to make friends and influence people. >> the way to win elections is not to insult people, and it's kind of insulting, and for the republican party, they have to go through the stages of grief. some of them are now in denial. as soon as they get past denial, they can look at exactly what went wrong. for mitt romney to talk about gifts and insult american voters is something that is not good. and what surprises me is how quickly republicans have run away from mitt romney. >> he said almost exactly the same thin
as high-ranking, frankly as former president bill clinton to go and be the negotiator. we need a person of enormous prestige and influence so have these parties sit down together. we're crumbling all over the middle east. >> john: that was john mccain talking about how much work is needed to regain credibility. >> boy. that will hurt your head if you think about that too long. >> john: somebody should tell him we have already had bill clinton trying to negotiate middle east peace. it has been attempted before and in fact the prime mainster of israel paid for it with his life. you know, i really think that there is no military solution to israel and palestine, and i'm on the side of any christian jew or muslim who is trying to solve our problems non-violently, because the only solution i think, is the next gandhi is going to have to come from israel or palestine. the next person to understand that non-violence is the only way to get social change out of a situation like this and that will also be a person male or female who understands social media and the digital
response was under bill clinton there was great economic prosperity. the whole land of obama is about bill clinton and how nifty the economy was under him. i would have given a limb to see mitt romney turned to him and say mr. president, i knew bill clinton. [laughter] >> our ideas work, their ideas don't. the last four years our economy has grown 1.5% a year. that is less than half the historical average. for 70 years we average 3.3% growth a year. this president is fond of saying -- the worst economy in the history of the universe and everything by the way is george w. bush's fault. he doesn't have much historical memory when he makes that argument. any of you remember in 1978-1979? double digit unemployment, 22% interest rates, gas lines, stagflation, in 1980 and very different president got elected. ronald reagan liked barack obama and inherited a struggling economy. and reagan implemented policies 180 degrees opposite, instead of jacking up taxes. he cut taxes. instead of exploding spending and the debt he restrained the growth of spending instead of unleashing the hounds of regulator
. >>stuart: the democrats will say back in the 1990's bill clinton raised tax rates and we got an economic boon. what is the difference? >>guest: bill clinton did not have huge deficits but he caught government spending as a share of g.d.p. he did a great job cutting capital gains tacks and these guys raising them and cut taxes on the working elderly and he was great, he put in wealth fair reform, reappointed the fed chairman twice, and, in fact, he did such a good job i voted for him twice if you can imagine. >>stuart: no, i can't but that is another story. let's be clear, you are saying, we don't have to go all the way over the fiscal cliff with massive increases for everyone and huge cuts in spending that is not what you are suggesting. you are suggesting the tax rates on the rich go up and that is enough to sour the economy next year. be clear what you are saying. >>guest: that is what i am saying. the job creatures are upper income people the people who decide how much they will employ and where they will employ them. if you raise the tax rates on that, on those people, it makes them
frankly as former president bill clinton to go and be the negotiator. i know he'd hate me for saying that, but we need a person of enormous prestige and influence to have these parties sit down together as an honest broker. >> joining me now is mark murray. mark, what are your thoughts on what john mccain he floated out there? >> well, you know, bill clinton was a troubleshooter for barack obama during the presidential contest, and he certainly knows his dealings in that really troubling, very difficult terrain of middle east politics. i would say he might be able to help out and negotiate a cease-fire, but actually completely solving the whole middle east process in conflict there with something he was unable to do as president. it's been a thorny issue for lots of presidents, and you understand why that world is so volatile and has repercussions throughout the entire globe. >> mark, back to first read and some of the assessment. obviously, the asap notion is an obvious one. we know that the white house and president talking with both morsi and netanyahu today. you heard -- i don't know
for blame. >> can't you see bill clinton getting on the phone to barack obama and saying, you remember what i did back in 19 whenever. i made the republicans' response will be closing down the government. they never got over it. destroy them. lou: i think that actually i would not be surprised if bill clinton is not orchestrated the whole thing right now, if you will, behind the curtain. >> i would not be surprised if president obama was on the phone with a regular basis with former president clinton talking about what occurred in 95. they did force the government shut down and it was the end of republicans for a while. it was pretty extraordinary. >> barack obama campaigned on this issue. think he will dig his heels in, and he very successfully painted republicans as obstructionists. that is what it will be blamed i agree with you. i think he will dig his heels in. not so sure that the republican leaders will dig their heels and on the tax hikes. i'm not sure where this will go. a see a potential for republicans giving, not barack obama. >> i would like to say that i see a potential for bo

clinton in. he should be the mediator in this latest conflict. would israel or gaza welcome bill clinton? >> reporter: i've been saying that, actually, myself. i wrote a blog post on our "situation room" blog post months ago saying after george mitchell, the obama administration's special envoy for israeli/palestinian peace negotiations, after he ended his tour without any success at all. that's been more than a year ago. maybe a year and a half or so ago. i said they need -- really, they need someone who's got clout with the israelis. who's got clout with the palestinians in the arab world. i thought bill clinton, especially with his wife leaving as secretary of state, maybe that would be a good assignment for him. he's taken on other assignments like haiti relief, for example, the tsunami. i know he got -- the final months of his presidency to a deal between the israelis and the palestinians. i think mccain may be on to something. i don't know if bill clinton would want to do it. i've asked him that question in an interview i did with him a few months back. he didn't say no. he didn't
elite schooling and populist instincts to bill clinton back when he brought his project of southern populist moderation to the democratic project back in 1989, 1990, 1991. so there's a road map here and bob ji jindal i think is the first one to jump on it but he won't be the last. >> but the thing is though -- >> i go add had. >> the thing is that jindal is sticking with the cultural conservatism. he's a brown educated guy with a rhodes scholarship but he's for teaching creationism in school. a big part of the tea party thing has been resistance to opening the doors on immigration. that's something he's not dealing with at this point. >> right. >> i wonder how many immigrant families that come to the united states and want their kids to be doctors really want them to study this creationism as premed. do they want them to take organic chemistry or this other thing, this religious thing, john heilemann? are they serious? do they really want the doctors they go to not to believe in science? it's one thing to believe in your religion, which i do, but to go transfer some biblical scriptu

war. senator john mccain suggesting to bring in bill clinton as a peace negotiator and calling him an honest broker to go in to handle it. and now let's go to aymon goldien. >> well, palestinian forces have left today alone 25 people killed. these targets have varied in range and scope. one incident took place on sunday that is drawing strong condemnation from people here and several around the world saying that it may have amounted to a massacre at the house of one leading member of a hamas militant. according to israel, this is a house belonging to a senior official of hamas, but at the same time there were 12 people inside of that house, including four women and four children. all of them killed. so many people are condemning that attack. meanwhile, it is nighttime here and the people of gaza are bracing themselves for what could be another night of deadly attacks despite the diplomatic activity in cairo. negotiations are under way as well as palestinian factions as to what to do next, but those here in gaza say they are preparing for a ground invasion, and meaning if israel lau

not raise taxes during recession. even bill clinton said a millionaire surcharge is not going to help our debt situation. but both congress and the president, they need to go to the negotiating table and work out a deal and not leave until we working is out. jon: but in the past they haven't exactly shown that ability. i mean they haven't shown the ability to get that done. >> no. it is a new day, a new congress. congress doesn't look that different than it did before. >> a new attitude. not a new congress. i think now the american people have spoken and they didn't change anything but giving them a second chance. >> but what we also know, new day for republicans because pew research as well as "washington post" research polls show republicans will take the hit and credit for a deal not getting done if it does. there is that incentive as well. you have to look at ronald reagan as well as henry kissinger, when they went into negotiations, said you have to come willing to truly cut a deal. you may get 90%. >> takes both sides. obama is very good in liberal rhetoric blaming republicans. even

about for a while that president obama named former president bill clinton as a special middle east envoy given his history with the israelis and palestinians. tony blair thought that was a pretty good idea if the president of the united states was inclined to do it, but let's see if anything gets off the ground as far as a cease-fire is concerned to begin with. natalie. >> it will be interesting to see if bill clinton got in the mix there. does israel fear recriminations, wolf, of a ground assault which it saw in 2008? >> israel is very worried about what would happen not only to its own troops, but what would happen in gaza because you go into a densely populated yak liar gaza and armored personnel carriers. it's going to be ugly. there's no doubt about that. they want to avoid it, at the same time they want to end these rockets and missiles coming into israel. it's not an easy decision for them, and i suspect there's a limited amount of time before the prime minister makes up his mind together with his cabinet what he is going to do. >> all right. wolf blitzer for us live many je

a push back by the opposition party. 1992 when bill clinton was elected bob dole went on tv and said i represent the 57% of americans who did not vote for bill clinton. paul ryan gave an interview saying he didn't believe that president obama has a mandate because he didn't win both congresses. you have to say eisenhower, nixon, reagan, other presidents substantially re-elected or elected didn't have mandates themselves. >> tom brokaw, in this second term as the president begins to decide how to shape his policies, be he according to all that have talked to him and other white house officials want to get things done. he told the "des moines register" in an interview he thought was going to be held as an off the record interview, wanted to do something big on immigration. clearing the deck of these investigations as you said and this our aura of scandal is critical to have the power on capitol hill to make tough decisions. >> rudy giuliani said before this election and says it in a kind of joshing way, that he doesn't want a second term, he wants a second chance. i thought that was accu
of it followed bill clinton's 1993 tax increase. now, mitt romney has just spent two years telling us that tax cuts are all you need to stimulate the economy. is that wrong? >> absolutely wrong. supply side economics is bunk. we have seen historically not only when bill clinton raised taxes the economy did very well. george w. bush in 2001, 2003, cut taxes and the economy did very badly and then ultimately went really over a cliff in 2008. or more evidence for the first three decades after the second world war in the united states, the top tax rate never fell below 70% under dwight d. eisenhower, president eisenhower -- >> and yet professor, we have heard paul ryan, the so-called budget policy wonk of the house, repeatedly tell us that what we need to do is cut taxes and the economy does great. >> well, that's just simply not true. we had an election. most of the americans obviously did not believe that nonsense, and it is absolutely nonsense. there's no correlation at all between tax rates on the very top and the economy doing worse or for that matter doing much better. but here we have a hug
bill clinton came in and said we are way too left and have to moderate our positions and that is where the democratic leadership council came in. there are a lot of democrats that were very upset with bill clinton during the late '80s and early '90s. they obviously won the white house back in 1992 because they nominated a moderate to center democrat that could win independents and women and people of color and so forth? >> there is an article that the tea party is over. that obviously is the right of the right fringe element of the republican party. very hard line. they certainly had a bigger voice when more of those supported members were elected to congress in 2010, but is that accurate? do you think the tea party is over for extreme conservea tichl? >> time will tell. clearly last tuesday voters didn't express happiness or support for the tea party very clearly. the question will be whether the republican party tries to move as jonathan just described, kind of moderates their message or still beholden to that kind of extreme part of the party? we're starting to see a few dfrs say we
the party needs to meet voters where they are and not the other way around. bill clinton was a figure in the democratic party that rebranded and changed the party's image. the republican party, it remains to be seen who our bill clinton will be. we will have a incredibly difficult time winning elections for the foreseeable future absent an ability to communicate in a much more effective way. thank you very much. >> i want to thank both of you for coming up here tonight. you can see all of us here in delaware are very appreciative.
